(I didn't comment on your commiting a bumped empty changelog entry)

As proposed by our packaging guidelines:

"After each upload to the Debian FTP servers, the first commit should be creating a new changelog entry, to ease testing of unreleased packages."



Do anyone (except you, now) really follow this changelog maintainance style?

Looks like an artifact from pre git days to me.

Do we really want that? I see no benefit. If we want to avoid unofficial package accidentally named like official ones, we should not only create a new changelog entry but also add a trailing ~unofficial to version number and perhaps also add a line "Local build." to the changelog entry. Else it will just clash with _next_ official package instead of the _previous_ one.
